    Does the Air (256gb model is what I'm looking at) have the same SSD as the RMBP?

    Thanks!

    They're physically different sizes, but so far it seems that the 2012 256GB drives in the Air and retina MBP are all Samsung 830 based SSDs, as are the 512GB, and in the case of the retina MBP, 768GB SSDs.

    The 64GB and 128GB SSDs in the Airs so far appear to be Toshiba SSDs.

    Great that's what I needed to know. I didn't know if I'd be taking a speed hit on the drive if I return my RMBP and go with the Air.
